Periplus-1 Sailing Team back into business

After a quiet 2012 sailing season in which both Martin Valk and Arjan Sijp were committed to professional challenges, the Periplus-1 is back into business!  With the Eagle F20 class catamaran, currently being modified to ‘race set-up’, the team will sail a number of races this season. “Ambitiously as we are, we aim to beat our 2011 results”, says Martin. The Periplus-1 sailed to three victories in that season: the Dutch Championship Nacra – open class, Bergen Jazz and Sail and the Fastwell race in Medemblik.

Periplus Consultancy, who proudly committed to a sponsorship agreement for the season, wishes Martin and Arjan lots of joy and success!

Periplus Archeomare sponsors the National Scheepvaartmuseum

Since January 2013 Periplus Archeomare is a member of the ‘Maritime Circle’ of the Scheepvaartmuseum in Amsterdam. The Scheepvaartmuseum is a museum with international appeal and it houses a world-class collection of paintings and ship models. It is also the home of the replica of the VOC-ship ‘Amsterdam’.

The ‘Maritime Circle’ is one of the opportunities to partner with the Scheepvaartmuseum. For Periplus Archeomare this partnership is not only an investment in Art en Culture but also an expression of the common involvement with the maritime history and cultural heritage of the Netherlands.
The sponsorship also fits with Periplus Archeomare’s ambition to be a well renowned player, both nationally and internationally, in the field of underwater archaeology.

Successful season 2011 for Periplus catamaran sailing team

The Periplus sponsored catamaran team of Martin Valk and Arjan Sijp had a very successful season. The young team participated in five races and managed to finish first overall in three of them!

In the opening race of the season, the NK Nacra open class, the team managed to win all seven heats in favourite wind conditions. In the Round Texel Race in June, adverse weather made the team decide to stay on shore. Considering that from the 400 boats in the race, 250 were grounded, damaged or capsized, this appeared to be a wise decision and the new Catamaran Eagle 20 was therewith kept in splendid condition for the races to follow.

The first regatta with the new boat (Baptized: Periplus-1) ended in a deserving 19th place. The best performances however were saved for the last two regattas of the season: During both the Bergen Jazz & Sail Regatta and the Fastwell Race in Medemblik, the Periplus-1 finished in first place. Both races were true epics and were sailed against serious and often professional competition!

Periplus is proud to sponsor the ambitious team of Martin and Arjan and talks about sponsor arrangements for next season have started already. Currently we are considering taking part in the Archipelago Raid 2012. This regatta between Sweden and Finland is considered as one of the most challenging regattas in the world. We will keep you up to date!
